RainHarvest Barrel Discounts


Herriman City is again partnering with the Utah Rivers Council to bring our residents a limited number of discounted, American-made rain barrels as part of the RainHarvest program.

***Note the deadline for rain barrel purchases is Sunday, April 21, 11:59 p.m.***

RainHarvest is a program that distributes rain barrels to Utah residents to collect rainwater that falls on rooftops for later use on lawns and gardens. This program offers residents the opportunity to affordably conserve water through rainwater collection. By purchasing these heavily discounted rain barrels, Utahns can reduce municipal water demand and improve the water quality of local streams, rivers, and lakes by decreasing polluted runoff.

Why collect rainwater?

Rainwater harvesting is legal in Utah, and with our desert dry climate, it’s always a good time to collect your own water. Not only does rain harvesting reduce demand on municipal water systems, it also reduces the amount of pollution that enters the Great Salt Lake and local rivers from urban runoff during storm events.

How do I collect rainwater?

During storm events, the rain that falls on rooftops flows through rain gutters and downspouts and can be collected by rain barrels. Made in the U.S. of 100% recycled plastic, not only are 50-gallon Ivy Rain Barrels an eco-conscious option for rainwater collecting, they are user-friendly and one of the most popular options for rainwater collecting across the country. They come with a locking lid, a mosquito screen, a 3/4” valve that can be connected to a garden hose and linking capability to connect multiple barrels together.

How can I purchase a rain barrel?

Herriman residents are invited to order these $55 rain barrels at http://www.rainbarrelprogram.org/urc, while supplies last. There are a limited number of $55 barrels so place your order today! Once the subsidized barrels run out, $83 rain barrels are available for purchase by any member of the public. The sale window will remain open until late April 2024. The barrels will be distributed at a one-day, in-person, event in early May. Rain barrels will not be shipped to residents.

Please note that purchasing a barrel is a two-step process. The first step is to enter your address into the website above, which will then be verified to ensure you are eligible for a subsidized barrel from Herriman. Then you will be redirected to a page where you will receive a discount code. The second step is to enter this discount code into the purchasing website and finalize your barrel purchase. It is important to note that receiving a discount code is *not* confirmation of a purchase.

Place your order today at www.rainbarrelprogram.org/urc. Scroll down to the "Salt Lake County" section of the table, and start the first step by clicking "Subsidy Form Page." Note that "Salt Lake County is sold out" refers to unincorporated Salt Lake County, not Herriman nor other cities.
